Physical Education, Health, and Safety (P-12)
Students acquire an essential knowledge base and philosophical foundation for successful professional decision-making skills required for teachers/coaches in public and private schools. Courses required for this major are congruent with the Oklahoma state competencies for licensure and the National Association for Sport and Physical Education professional recommendations. Students are expected to complete a four year curricular study of courses that meet both state and national standards. Students must pass the OGET (Oklahoma General Education Test), OSAT (Oklahoma Subject Area Tests), and PSAT (Professional Studies Area Tests) in order to obtain an Oklahoma state teaching certificate.
The Exercise Science Program is designed to prepare the student for a career related to health, fitness/wellness in schools, hospitals, medical clinics, community and private fitness centers. The core course requirements follow the professional preparation standards published by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Kinesiology (Pre-PT, Pre-OT & Allied Health)
The Kinesiology degree track is designed to help the student fulfill prerequisites required for admission to a professional graduate school offering entry level Master's or Doctorate degrees in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, or other allied Health professions.

The Athletic Training Program provides both the didactic and the clinical preparation for the graduate to be eligible to challenge the BOC certification examination. In addition to classroom experiences, each student's clinical education includes laboratory courses and clinical rotations. Students in clinical rotations learn under the direct supervision of a Certified Athletic Trainer or other qualified clinical instructor. The SNU Athletic Training program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
